ouh the nau catrinita didn't came back!
amerika baixa a tola aka amerika lay down your head is a collage track based on different jam sessions I did in different places with my three projects, XARHOPE, ENGENHO (with MINSON) and SHAGARA OLAEIA (with NEMRACA). The first jam happened in the beginning of 2009, before i leave portugal, at republica solar 44, Coimbra, its just freedrums and power electronics played by me and MINSON. NEMRACA played after the helicopter violin part that were mixed with this material. About the silly melodica tune in the beginning of the song, it came from my project XARHOPE, and was recorded somewhere around costa azzurra during the vendemia in the midle of my trip to Turkey. In the beggining of 2010 me and NEMRACA started to travel along the Midle east, and we, as SHAGARA OLAEIA, did some more jams with local people in Istanbul, Damascus, Beirut, Amman and Cairo, in some of this jams we were sometimes just playing with objects we found in the houses of our flatmates in another ones we are playing with street musicians, as happened with a rebaba seller in Cairo that can be listened in the second, desert oriented part of the song, sometimes is just noises from the street and people going mad and saying things like amerika lay down your head, now!
